    Got out the the creek yesterday, found many spike specks an TB flounder, but did manage a couple keeper trout and flounder for a quick meal, and a couple of reds for a good tussle. The bite could have been a lot better, the day before my buddy got an entire days worth of catching on specks from 2-3lbs. We managed a bunch in very muddy water conditions, but not a lot over 12", including most of the flounder too. The bite came strongest on Gulp baits, that seemed to produce better do the the scenting, but powerbaits were also producing farther out the creek were the water was a bit clearer, but the bite was a lot harder to find.

    Sounds like you a good day. Nice to see you caught some flatfish up in the creeks pretty uncommon for this time of year.

    The flounder here do one of two things in the winter...about half of them move offshore(mostly larger fish), and the rest move up into the creeks for the winter. You find a few decent fish still, but on average you get a lot of 6-10" fish, with the occasional bigger. The two keepers we caught the other day were two of about 12 we caught.
